EMPORIA Emporia, the home of the m@st recent addition to the roll of Sigma AlPha, is a city of about 15,000 population, and is located the centre of the sunrlower State. It is beautifully· situated in midst of a riCh agricultural section, but is separated from the ng district by tv;o small~. but lovely, rivers, the Neosho and the to.nwood, which almost encircle the tovm. Emporia· is a residenti~l ~~d college toun. During ~he school ita streets · are thronged with the many students uho h~ve come, in some eBses from distant ppints, to attend one or the other of its juatly famous insti t.utions , The fine grade school and the ne-rr county Hiah School attract many young peop}.e . f'rom outlying districts, but the alnesa College, _. the two Conservatories of' Husic, the College of Emporia a.nd the State Normal School are the ones that bring the greater er or students and add so much of life to the delightfujly situated 11 ttle ei ty. . It would seen as tho so large a student population v:ould need Oll1 places of' amusement ~ Host of' the social life of the students1 ver, is pro-v ided by' the schools themselves, but there are in Emporia three motion picture houses, all on the best circuits. One of h parks is equipped with boating and sHinning facilities, and a pavilion for roller skating and dancing . Among the nttnble buildings re the nerr Y.M.C.A. the Masonic Temple, the court House and the CarneLibrary. There is much wealth ~d much culture in Emporia . The beaut~ tul CountJ'r Club attests to the leisure of the nealthy residents and adde a qua11 ty thn.t 1a laclting sometimes in all save the larger -cities ot tbe eount~y. Emporia. prides :i!Self on being the home of Ualt lv·ason, ~ose jinglea are knmn~ wherevere the English language is read, and of .m All8n Uhite, the ~amous author. Emporia is not yet seventy years old, yet it has miles 0f ll&Yement, fine roads, beautiful parks .:md hn.ndsome ho~:1es . It is often ~ atgncte d · as a city ~f schools nnd churches, for the P-duc~tional and oral atmospher~ predominate, Because of its centr~l location and its cc as1b11ity by reason of being on the main line of the SantP F~ 1 as 11 ao on t11~ 1iissouri, rcansas and TE~.Xas .Railroe.d, it lH1s been chos?.n reatdenc.e by many -r1ho vrish to live far frt>m thP whirring 1-:-':l eP lF omn-rc.ial life.

Kappa Delta Theta has all1ayc o.rrc.nged for three big '30ci a l ::-..feach year. There has been the Christ~as tinner ~~d r arty, ~t wh1ch there wa~ a tree bearing two gifts fer each girl, scmethiug u sc ful a.nd oometh1ng cOIJic. After the party, the tree and the toys on it nere sent to make unfortunate childre d happy . Then in Februo.r y cane the Formal on or nc~r st. Valentine's Day. This party was u sually given at the "Wigvrn.m", and nnny alumnae have returned for it ye c,r after year. Our third celebra.tion nas always given the last >ree k of school and vras in the nn.ture of a f<:!.rcV7ell party for the seniors and a reunion for the graduates. Kap~a Delta Theta has been most fortunate in having for s ponsors and adv1.sers some of the most attractive and influential \'Croon of tbe fa.eulty a.nd the city. Miso .Mary A. t lhi tney v1as c. Sponsor unti 1 abe was appointed Dea.n of Women. Hrs. -.7. .7 . ? arker, formerly Voice Teacher, served us faithfully until 1915, nhen she resigned to becone a P~troness. Mrs. Edgar M. Forde, National Vice ? resident of the congress Sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, served us three ~are as Sponsor, but is now a Patroness. For a n~~ber of years we have had the head of the Physical Training Department as a Sponsor, - Ili ss Thayer {!,,'-906 -1 2) Miss Smith, now Mrs. Randell of Denver, ( 1912-15), and Miss Johnson (1915-17) , Another Sponsor· is Miss (]eJhherine E. Strotse , e.n Instruc tor in the Department of' ~.'ublic School Music, who has been a ti ve l interested in the society since 1912. When the present school year opened, Kappa Delta Theta r eturned two alumnae to the faculty, Ros~li e u righam 7 Instructor in Pi anc and Nell Grant, an Assistant in Primary Music, as well as ten active girls, -Janet Arkinson, Maude Barrit;ar, Dortha Br ady, Erma Brovm, Ha ze l Brown, Harriett Hover, Ann Nanninga, Robeccn Ott, Marsaret Ramse yer ~d Vaughnie Waynick. The rushing season opened quite soon afterwards and took on a c1if:feront f'oature because until this Fa.ll, there had been no 'national' element in the rushing. The install~tion of' Tri Sigma and Delta Epsilon on the same week end in the Spring had a lte r ed the complexion of things considerably. It was while Kapp~ Deltn Theta was pmdering over the problem that it happened to discover in the entering class a most a.ttractive girl, Graee McGinnis, v1ho, ~s it happened, ws a si ster of Urs. Paul Dysart Higbee of' the Kirksv).lle Chapter of !~. lpha Sigma .AJtpha. Thro he1 ne came to meet a little later another ma triculate, Blanche Stevenson , "' member of thP Chapter at .h.lva. It was possible for these t wo 8irl G to introduce Kappa Del tu Theta very quickly to ""'.~.lpha Si8ma Al ph a an d to enable it to get word in time so that the girls who were being rushed could be offered a HATIONAL . i:.. s a result of the hard work done by Ka~pa Delta Theta and the timely telegr am announc~g t~e. su c ~·ess of the petition, there were nine new girl s secured in a ddl t J_on C.'> HcGinnis,- Holen .llilderson, Madgo Brown, Ai l een Ellis, Avl!s J en kina, Lois Koontz, Mary Lewis, Frances Morrou , Gladys Pratt and :2lizabcth S:r:1i th . .

Sigma Sigma Sigma, desiring to shov; its goodni.ll, sent three corsage bouquets of' violets. Tho ne11 Chapter had provided cDrsage ~ouqucts of red roses, while Mrs. Nellie Cole of the Oklahoma delegation had supplied huge yellow chrystha.ne6ur.o for all, s~ltogether the scene took on a most festi vc appearance. Cherry punch and v;afer~ ~ere served, and there was exquisite victrola musi~ throughout the evening. The visiting ASAs were up betimes on Saturday morning, in order that the reception ·rooms might be prepared for the formal initi ~­ tion. This service required the whole of the afternoon, even tho the initiates were taken in groups of four. The new fittings of the Installation Trunk added much to tho beauty of tho setting. Then Alpha Beta loaned its robes for the occasion and presented the new Chapter with handsome covers for the Altar Books. The D ibl~s had been presented by tho girls of Ga~a Gacrma. Miss Jewett ~a s at the high altar, hhile Miss Shockley served as Chaplain Miss Stevenson as Vice President, and Miss Mauntel as Registrar.

At seven o'clock ' the new Chapter gave its Inst a llation Bc..nquet at the Faculty Club . The beautifully appointed dining rooM, t:1.e filoy evening gowns of the Girls, the shaded lishts , the perfume of the flmwrs made a never-to-beeforgotten scene.
